Bristol Blenheim saloon
our thanks to the Bristol owners club


 

When viewed at its launch in 1994, replacing both types Brigand and Britannia, details of this new derivation of the Type 603 Saloon amply justified the adoption of yet another famous Bristol Aeroplane Company name for this type.

The curved lower edge of the grille aperture of the new Blenheim emulates the grille chrome trim used on the early 410 and the 411 s3 lighting treatment is remembered in a return to the use of Siamesed driving lamps.
